March 31, 2011   - TAP- Tunisia and Morocco decided to coordinate their positions in matters of agriculture and environment within regional authorities, particularly the Union for the Mediterranean and the 2020 Initiative of the European Union to fight against pollution in the region.
This decision was made following the meetings Minister of Agriculture and Environment Mokhtar Jellali had in Rabat with Morocco's Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries Abdellah Chefchaoui and High Commissioner for Water, Forests and Fight against Desertification Abdeladim Lhafi.
The Tunisian Minister and his Moroccan counterparts also agreed during these encounters, held on the sidelines of the Sahara and Sahel Observatory(OSS) meeting, to favour the exchange of experience between the ''Groupe Chimique Tunisien GCT '' and the Moroccan Phosphates Company, namely in the field of fighting against pollution.
Besides, it was decided, at the end of the OSS meeting held March 28-29 in Rabat, to hold the next General Assembly of the observatory in Tunisia in April 2012.
